Hello! I also have the same problem.. The Airplane mode button is ON and i CAN'T turn it OFF... even on the Network Options.. it can't be switch off.
what should I do?
i needed wireless connection.
I have Dell Inspiron 5547
Not sure if this solution came up, but: I had this problem with a business computer on a trip, and found out too late how simple and therefore aggravating the solution has one step:
1. There's a hardware switch. No idea why Dell thought that this would improve the user experience, but that's all it was. On one computer it was above the f-keys, on this one it's hidden inocuously on the right side of the laptop next to the headphone jack. I must of hit it by accident, but flipping it fixed everything.
Hope that helps,
Hi I have figured out your problem, there is a button on your keyboard that looks like a wifi tower press this button and it should allow you to turn off the airplane mode, good luck my friend
Wow!! It worked like magic! The answer was in front of me the whole time, thank you sooooooooo much! I will definitely pass on your intelligence!!
I reinstalled both the drivers...
button starts working for some time, but stops working after I restart my laptop..
dear dell laptop lovers to on/off or disable or enable Airplane mode hold down Fn key and press F2 key
